Houston, TX (PRWEB) February 23, 2016
Today’s schools are under increasing pressure to modernize their classrooms and curricula. Web-based education apps and student computers are no longer a vision of the future, but an integral part of the modern, digital classroom. IT departments in K-12 schools now face an ever-growing number of users, mobile devices, and cloud-based applications to manage, often times with inefficient and disparate identity management tools and processes.
As technology access expectations and security threats increase, budgets are not necessarily growing in tandem. While facing pressure to keep costs low, K-12 IT departments are tasked with making the transition from legacy point tools and manual processes to more modern solutions that support digital classroom learning. Schools need technologies that are purpose-built for education that help IT teams truly do more with less.
Today, Identity Automation has announced a partnership with The Washington School Information Processing Cooperative (WSIPC), a public agency that provides information services and systems to K-12 school districts throughout the state at best-in-state pricing. Through this partnership, school districts that are members of WSIPC can now purchase Identity Automation’s RapidIdentity solution at a discounted price, allowing them to securely create, manage and offboard students, teachers, staff, and parent group identities and access throughout the entire academic lifecycle.
Identity Automation has worked with hundreds of school districts throughout the United States -- including Kennewick and Everett School Districts in Washington State -- to solve the identity and access management challenges they face using automated lifecycle management of user accounts, user single sign-on (SSO) and teacher self-service for password management and resets.
“We are excited to be a part of the WSIPC Purchasing Program and bring RapidIdentity, our next-generation IAM solution, to its member schools,” said James Litton, CEO of Identity Automation. “We commend WSIPC for its work to provide schools with cost effective access to the leading technologies required to securely enable the modern, digital classroom.”
